The internet spoke, and Coffee Stain Studios has listened. Goat simulator is coming. The game I’ve pegged as the Game of All Time is a fun little project that was never meant to be a commercial project, but they’ve made a ewe turn. The world, it seems, wants to live out its Capricorn fantasies.
You can pre-order the game for $9.99 here, giving you access to the obviously anticipated Goat Simulator 3 days before it officially releases on Steam.Pre-ordering gets you a guaranteed Steam key, and you’ll very probably be able to earn Steam achievements for doing goaty things.
It all seems a bit fun, but $10 bucks to run about as a goat doesn’t strike me as good value. even the developer don;t really recommend you spend your money on Goat Simulator.
Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. I t was made in a couple of weeks so don’t expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats. In fact, you’re better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you’d spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat.
But wait! Coffee Stain Studios has confirmed they’ll be adding steam workshop support, so the game will end up being modded to madness, adding all sorts of fun fun animals and silly things to do. I probably won;t be buying and playing this myself, but I sure as hell am keen to watch other people’s Let’s Plays of this madness when it’s released later this year.

I am also the emperor of the backend
